PNY Gets A Little Plug On Intel’s Server Configurator

We use the Intel Server Configurator to create our base server configurations.

Lately, Intel has been tweaking the Configurator with third party products that have been properly tested to work with their server systems.

This is the first time we have seen a third party product within the Configurator itself:


PNY G92 GeForce 8800GT Video

For nVidia, we would run with EVGA since we have had great support from the folks there when things were not working out with their motherboard or video card products.

Note the new component requirements for the 5500 series Quad Core Xeon processors. The cooling solution is no longer included in the box with the CPU.

Also note that the new SC5650 series chassis has a bunch of new SKUs for it too.
